koferencjaThe year 2015 has been declared as International Year of Evaluation. For over 10 years Poland has been very active in this area. Poland’s activities have resulted in numerous reports (over 900 evaluation surveys), development of the evaluation methodology and public intervention, creation of a group of experts as well as a network of dynamic evaluation units engaged in the development of evidence-based public management culture. What’s still missing is the application of this knowledge in the process of public intervention The challenge we are facing now is how to manage the substantial knowledge from evaluations to use them efficiently in supporting decision-makers and managers in rational public activities.

Pracownia Gier Szkoleniowych, in collaboration with an expert in the field of evaluation and analyses EGO company – has designed a game called ‘Knowledge Brokers’ aimed at helping analytical and evaluation units employees as well as public projects managers to answer the following questions:

  • What information and knowledge do decision-makers need at a given phase of program implementation?
  • How to find reliable information in the overwhelming amount of data, analyses and evaluations?
  • How to convert experience resulting from a particular evaluation into broader knowledge about efficient public policy?
  • How to reach decision-makers with evaluation results?

Participants of the 11th Evaluation Conference, which took place in Cracow on 28th and 29th of September, could participate in a workshop based on the simulation game Knowledge Brokers and experience in practice the challenges such as the acquisition of reliable and useful knowledge and conveying it to decision-makers. The workshop was conducted by: Jagoda Gandziarowska-Ziołecka from Pracownia Gier Szkoleniowych and Karol Olejniczak from EGO.
